Donjon de Lamarque Haut-Medoc 2016


Tasting Note

Donjon de Lamarque is made with the younger grapes of the property with a higher percentage of Merlot (up to 60%) and less Cabernet (40% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc). The Merlot could actually have been part of the Château de Lamarque blending but that would change the traditional Cabernet dominated blend of the first wine.

Donjon de Lamarque is aged in French oak barrels (all coming from the French region of Allier) for about 12 to 14 months before being bottled. The picking of the barrels is extremely meticulous, being guided by the idea of respecting the harmony between the oak tannins and the wine tannins. Every year the pairing is different. Traditionally 2 vintage-old barrels are used for Donjon de Lamarque.

Donjon de Lamarque is a fleshy wine on the fruit with vanilla notes and underwood aromas. It presents a well-balanced body and a great length on the palate. It is definitely a wine you can cellar up to 10 years.
